The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.0
6.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Nissan Juke is best considered as the sportiest pick among subcompact crossovers, but it does come at a price. A versatile, retro throwback, the Volkswagen Beetle offers a decent value but not a lot of high-tech features... kind of like the original.
